In 2013, he established his own design practice in Warsaw. Krystian works with leading international furniture and product brands. His work is focused on finding intelligent, human-centred solutions that go beyond the obvious & attempt to offer a fresh and observational approach to any given problem. The practice combines a technology research, advance 3D modelling with manual skills. His love for making and building things gives him a unique perspective on manufacturing solutions, material qualities and the DNA of each particular product, and the studio's busy workshop remains at the heart of his process.
